Hum, you are right but some people (like me) think about url encoding
when it comes to do http POST/GET and not about the url itself. Now I
learned something ;)

Well, something along these lines would be helpful I think :

The url given to CURLOPT_URL must be url-encoded following the RFC
2396 ( This more or less mean
you should use curl_escape() on each part that you use to build the
url ( for example when you have weird folder / file names ).

Keep up the good work :)
